Last TWA aircraft to be transformed
The last aircraft with the TWA livery is on its way to Kansas City to be given the American Airlines livery.
David Campbell, vice president of American Airlines' Kansas City Maintenance Base, said by the end of next week, workers at the facility will have stripped, polished and painted 130 TWA airplanes into the American livery in nine months.
The plane, known as No. 4WS, or Wings of Pride, was also leased by employees of TWA in 1994 through payroll deductions to demonstrate pride in the company.

American Airlines Files for Bankruptcy

Submitted 
American Airlines parent AMR Corp. (AMR) filed for bankruptcy after failing to secure cost-cutting labor agreements and sitting out a round of mergers that dropped it from the world’s largest airline to No. 3 in the U.S. With the filing, American became the final large U.S. full- fare airline to seek court protection from creditors. The Fort Worth, Texas-based company, which traces its roots to 1920s air- mail operations in the Midwest, listed $24.7 billion in assets and $29.6 billion in debt in . . .

So the cycle is now complete, as American joins every other major airline out there in filing for bankruptcy. It's just further proof that the old way of doing things no longer works.

Things have to change, and as the industry moves forward I believe we're entering an exciting time for aviation. Yes, airlines have legitimate challenges ahead with rising fuel costs, the cost of new airplanes, and the costs of labour and pensions. But the demand for flights keeps growing, and new fuel-efficient planes and computer technologies will help reduce the cost of doing business.

This rough patch won't last forever. Someone hit the reset button, and the whole thing is in the process of resetting itself.

I really believe we're coming into a new golden age in aviation. It's pretty exciting.

Yes Ritchie.......I agree about a resurgence in the Airline Industry....
It'll never be like it was...maybe good, maybe not....
when you had just a few now "Legacy" Airlines...and before every Loophole known to man...was figured out.....!!!!!
For most of the Airline's...their "MANTRA" of the last 15 years has been..."I GOT MINE...YOU GET YOURS".....Thats what I believe...!!!!!

guess all the CEO's/CFO's.....are literally running out of money...to "Loophole to themselves...."???


will the 99% of employees..who do All the work...and yes, there are external reason out the WA ZOO...(fuel costs, pensions(WTF), etc...well you know what I mean...those are all legitiment....

I personally feel...The Best Part of Aviation...though never be like the "old days".....making a comeback.....and it's up to us...(flying public) esspecially you..., even us GEEKS.....are a part of , maybe a Renewal....
time to get off my soapbox......

misstwa

ps....YA KNOW.....speaking of saving money....
CHILL WITH THE CRAZY LIVERIES..!!!!!
each Airline should only be allowed 2 Colors for their livery....
AND....if I see one more PokieMan...I'll puke......!!!!!!..and "dot coms".....

course this is just my "uninformed opinion...and subject to change..depending.....ha ha

The picture I posted here...is from the March or April tornado that made a direct hit at Lambert Field Intr'l Airport.....STL....
Thank God, no one was seriously hurt or killed....

and the CEO(can't remember the name).....
went so far as to...

The LoCo's are doing that already... allegedly.

current voting on FlightGlobal News q. of the Week -

AA in Ch.11

Business as usual - 47 - 38% (ish)
Bold step forward - 19 - 15%
Too easy... - 52% - 42%
Doomed!! - 6 - 5%

Those %'s even add up to 100!!

As to the CEO, CFO, and all getting "theirs", - can't comment on AA as I might get in Trubb'll - former bosses at Airbus in France are still, I believe, being investigated for allegedly off-loading stock options just before shares went south when build issues on the first A380's came to light. As always it will be the junior aircrew's, flight attendants, ground staff, mechs, et al, who will get all the pain and none of the pay-out... gone for a drink! ;))

AA in Ch.11 (QUESTION)

WAY TOO EASY!!!!!!!!!!!....99.9 %

AND THE "OFF LOADING" STOCK........GIVE YA 3 GUESSES AND THE FIRST 2 DON'T COUNT.........;)

GOING HAVE A DRINK........WITHOUT ME........!!!!!!!!!!!

WHAT THE HELL THIS WORLD COMING TO...............I GOT THE PHONE # OF A GREAT 'BAILBONDS MAN'...LOL

HAVE A GOOD ONE FOGGY........
